Xcode Color Themes


This is a small collection of my personal preference of color themes for xcode programming environment. For those who are looking for a dark theme. You can chose from one of the following color themes. I’m currently using teliaz theme, it has been tested and works very smoothly.

To get

teliaz theme

run the following code in Terminal:
[sourcecode]
mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes; cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes; curl http://teliaz.com/files/apple/TeliazTheme.xccolortheme &> TeliazTheme.xccolortheme
[/sourcecode]

To get

Ego theme

run the following code in Terminal:
[sourcecode]
mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes; cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes; curl http://teliaz.com/files/apple/XCodeColorTheme.xccolortheme &> EgoTheme.xccolortheme
[/sourcecode]
“EGO” uses the font “DejaVu Sans Mono” at 12pt. Some of you may know it as “Panic Sans” from Panic’s Coda (which is a repackaged version of it). You can grab the font over at dejavu-fonts.org. If you already have Code installed, feel free to swap in Panic Sans in place of DejaVu Sans Mono.

To get

Humane Theme

run the following code in Terminal:
[sourcecode]
mkdir -p ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes; cd ~/Library/Application\ Support/Xcode/Color\ Themes; curl http://teliaz.com/files/apple/Humane.xccolortheme &> Humane.xccolortheme
[/sourcecode]

Now just restart Xcode, go to Preferences > Fonts & Colors, and select “one of these themes” from the color theme drop down. Hope you like it!! Happy coding…

Thanks for the themes. When downloaded using those terminal commands, however, each file is prepended with the download information. (For example: % Total % Received % Xferd Average Speed Time Time Time Current
Dload Upload Total Spent Left Speed

0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 –:–:– –:–:– –:–:– 0
33 3427 33 1145 0 0 12255 0 –:–:– –:–:– –:–:– 16594
100 3427 100 3427 0 0 36527 0 –:–:– –:–:– –:–:– 49666 )

So xCode doesn’t recognize these themes until that extra part is removed.
